The setting was intimate, informal, and not necessarily the first place one might expect to hear voices raised in harmony! But thanks to generosity of the Friends of the Library of Hawai'i, on November 27, 2016, patrons of Kaimuki Public Library were treated to a musical commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Master of Ceremonies Tim Hopkins tied the offering of 1940s and patriotic songs together with historical, musical, and cultural developments before and after the attack, while encouraging the audience to learn more about this central event in Hawaii and world history. The Sounds of Aloha Chorus is grateful for this opportunity and for the very gracious and appreciative reception we received from the patrons and staff. We will be doing another commemorative performance on December 6, 2016, at the Historic Hickam Officer's Club.
